Personal appreciation & props to my girl

Monday, July 09, 2007

Some time ago, one of my spark friends mentioned that she was considering doing some body shots...portraits. I thought it sounded great and encouraged her and thought it would be something I'd love to do myself. When I saw how beautiful she looked, I had to do it myself. In the interim, I mentioned it to a couple of friends who have also either done it or considered doing the shots.

Is this little project vain? Maybe. Sure. But, when you walk by the mirror and go about your day to day business, you don't necessarily see what is there. Taking the pictures helps capture your body as you really are. Going to black and white and not showing the face eliminates distractions. I was actually surprised at how I looked. I also learned that I really like my body in it's natural state. I did not include any shots in my gallery where I am flexing...yikes! lol

I think this little project will help me maintain my program. I want to maintain this level of fitness.

So, thanks for the inspiration, Heather! :)

    I'm a photographer and just arranged a trade with a colleague to get shots done next spring (I have a long-term goal to reach first!). I'm so excited about it-- and how timely that I just noticed your page and your new pics! You look fantastic. Enjoy it!

    This is NOT vain....!!! You workout HARD... and the photo is your just reward! If we spent everyday and many months to remodel our livingroom and kitchen then we would throw a huge party and invite everyone that we knew to show it off!!! I consider this to be along those lines...!! Besides, we're not getting any younger. I do believe that if you were to survey older, wiser women in your family - they will agree, and they would probably dig out their pictures of the days when they were so young and beautiful!! Take many more pictures...!!
